I listened to a presentation this week from a librarian (a Canadian librarian who therefore possibly is not 100% up on the DMCA or the exemption process) talking about the difficulties the DMCA/copyright cause libraries (inability to serve as a true archive for ebooks and other digital materials, inability to make ebooks screen-readable for visually impaired patrons, etc) and she sort of mentioned that DMCA exemptions are theoretically possible but then immediately dismissed that as a route for libraries to pursue. I'm sure it's a whole other kettle of fish and obviously not easy, but I was still like "But I KNOW PEOPLE who get DMCA exemptions for stuff! WHY ARE WE NOT WORKING ON THAT?"

Which is to say. YAY GOOD WORK OTW LEGAL!
